Tiny cabin plans
DIY garden cabin Sonja is one of our tiny cabin plans. It is a charming small cabin with a loft. It has a simple symmetrical design with a gambrel roof and main entrance on the side of one wall, which leads directly to the central ground floor space. It is entirely up to you how you will use it. It could be a lovely working corner if you are a craftsman, private study if you have a lot of work to catch up on, artist studio if you like being creative, or anything else you can imagine. Windows on three sides provide enough light, and you can make the interior even cozier by adding, for example, a fireplace. Little wooden steps lead into the loft, which is rather spacious thanks to the gambrel roof. So you can have a sleeping corner or just a relaxing spot in there and still have enough space to store some of your things if you need them.
